Lübeck's historical Town Hall and the adjoining buildings form the perfect Advent backdrop for the exciting magic of the market stalls. Just follow the lights on a leisurely stroll. A host of Christmas stars, fairy lights and beautifully decorated Christmas trees ensure a magical winter atmosphere.
The clear air is tinged with the scent of roasting almonds, deep-fried pastries and mulled wine. There are sausages and many other tasty treats. They will be served to you on plastic-free reusable or biodegradable plates. The favourite traditional meeting point is the Kaak, an historical pillory in the marketplace below which the butter traders offered their wares for sale in the Middle Ages.
You will find an endless variety of Christmas arts and crafts at the over 200 sales stands. There are traditional Christmas tree decorations and toys along with regional products and exotic gift ideas.
